Default WS19 Power Switch - AFV

Attached is a pic of the WS19 Power Switch Unit from the inside of Bovington's Sherman Firefly... item to the right of the Variometer.

I am assuming that this is the master on/off switch for the WS19 supplying the feed from the tank to the WS19 PSU.

Does anyone have one of these switch boxes (assuming with a meter underneath) which they would either be happy to sell me - or at worst, send me some better pictures and info about.

Unfortunately I do not have a colour version of this picture... the original of which this is a small extract was supplied to me by Bovington Tank Museum and is their copyright.

Tim, that's not a master switch, it's the battery balancing switch. Used to enable drawing the 12v supply from either battery, prolonging their life.

Thanks for the clarification.

Do you have one for sale please, or can let me know where I can find one?

Cheers

All

I am reliably informed that a version of this switch exists for the Sexton.

If anyone has the Sexton part and they don't need it, please let me know.

Many thanks

Tim
